Holroyd Precision brings new levels of intelligence to helical rotor manufacture

Date published: 05 February 2020

Rochdale firm Holroyd Precision has introduced a number of innovative technologies to its rotor milling and grinding machines that will bring even greater levels of intelligence and efficiency to its customers’ manufacturing strategies.

Advanced scanning is now available with all Holroyd EX Series rotor milling machines and Holroyd TG Series rotor and screw grinding machines.

Holroyd is also working with leading automation specialists to incorporate IO-Link communication technology into new machines, and also offer it as an upgrade opportunity to deliver rapid, ‘single cable’ data transfer and performance monitoring capability from older machine tools.

Regional Sales Director, Steven Benn said: “Our goal has always been to develop technologies which simplify the manufacturing of even the most complex helical components, such as the introduction of the Holroyd Profile Management System software program to assist with the entire helical component manufacturing process.”

Mr Benn added: “We selected IO-Link for its ability to handle vast amounts of data, its recognised capability in providing powerful opportunities for industrial automation and its capacity to communicate at every level, right down to the simplest automation.

“For Holroyd machine tool customers, the real benefit will be the opportunity to learn from incredible levels of rich, real-time as well as historic production and performance data ­– in order to make comparisons that can benefit efficiency, accuracy and quality, and determine trends.”

Access to totally anonymised machine performance data, collected – with consent – from customers globally could also assist Holroyd in further enhancing what it believes to be class-leading customer care and planned preventive maintenance (PPM) packages, including scheduling maintenance around production regimes.

Mr Benn concluded: “Knowing exactly how different machines perform in quite different manufacturing environments, even if – as anticipated – any variation in performance is miniscule, will enable us to deliver even higher standards of support to all our customers.”
